Aamir & co. lives about 30 minute drive from me out in suburban Michigan.

Parents are in Isloo growing strawberries on a farm these days.

Ah the summer of 1976 in Paris. The summer of firsts: First trip to US, First visit to Disney World in FLA, First visit to the Louvre, First ogle at statues that were bare-foot all the way to the top of their head...
:lol:

Hmm: March of 1978- Are you referring to BAK/BAT?

Unfortunately he passed away last year.

Ok, now you share. How do you know my family so much?! :o

When DC-10 arrived all the captains were supposed to fly atleast 12 hours as co-pilots, therefore, you can see Captain A.A. Aziz on the right seat.

Oooops, I can't seem to post the photo of Capt. Main Aziz on the flight deck of DC-10
Thank you Saleem for sharing information, here's the photo:

I will include Capt. A.A. Aziz's name in photo caption.
